    New guy on the block!

    Hi everyone!
    My name is Chief and I live in Texas. Currently in the United States Navy (hence the Chief name). I am anxiously awaiting my CHL from Austin and will be looking forward to carrying my soon to be bought Glock. I hope that the forums here are as dedicated to answers and sound opinions as I have found on our Texas website, since I will be moving back to NC and I have NOT found a decent website (other than a "pay-per-view" type. Incidentally, you don't know of a site, do you?

    Also, I have been to USA Carry and asked questions there and as of yet have not received any answers to my questions. I will try them here in the next couple of days.

    Glad to be aboard, hope it is a good experience for all of us.

    Hooyah!

    Chief

    Aw shucks! Thanks for the welcome Y'all!

    Does anyone know if NC has any waivers of their requirements for Active Duty Military? I am speaking about the background checks (which each applicant has to pay for - being in the military we move A LOT!), a mental institution background check (FBI checks us out every year!) and a physical (ongoing in Active Duty)? I wrote the sheriff back where my house is and he wrote me a very brief - "I know this is a hassel but yes you have to do all of the other things." not too much info, huh? At any rate, if anyone has experience with this issue (or knows someone who has) please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Hooyah!
